Pokemon Diamond and Pearl

I can’t get the poke radar to work. I already have the national dex and whenever I try to use the radar, it always says (Professor Rowan’s words echoed) “There’s a time and place for everything, but not now.”

Games Guru: It only works when you are standing in the kind of tall grass where Pokemon like to hide.

Can you give me directions through Stark Mountain?

Games Guru: Stark Mountain is just too large for me to give a walkthrough. Sorry.

Is there really a Stareon and a star stone?

Games Guru: I have run across Staryus, Omastars and Staraptors, but no Stareons or star stones. Sorry.

Can you tell me how to use the Pokemon radar? I clicked on it with my stilus and I went into the light green grass for Pokemon, but nothing shows up. HEEELLLP!!!!!

Games Guru: You are going to need the National Pokedex before your radar works. You will know you have it when you see a meeting between Professor Oak (the professor in many earlier Pokemon games) and Professor Rowan.

How do you get through Victory Road?

Games Guru: You are not the first to ask this question. I am not going to give you step-by-step directions, but I will give you clues.

You will need a mixture of your toughest Pokemon and what I call “Traveling Pokemon.” These are monsters trained with moves for traveling that may not be so good in fights. They include strength, rock smash, surf, waterfall, cut and rock climb.

Victory Road is a great place to catch wild Pokemon, though I generally prefer to make it all the way through, then go back in to catch wild Pokemon such as Steelix, Onix, Graveler, Golbat and Machop. You will have plenty of fights even without battling wild Pokemon. The place is crawling with trainers.

To avoid unnecessary fights, give the Cleanse Tag to one of your Pokemon and take plenty of Max Repel.

You are going to want to rock climb every rock climbing trail, push every moveable boulder, swim up every lake and waterfall, etc. I think you will find that this Victory Road is actually shorter and easier than some past ones.

One last hint: At the end of the road, you will come to an exit blocked by a guy who tells you something about the world getting bigger. Do not waste your time with him. Go back a few paces and you will see a rock climb. Scale it and you will reach the end of the road–or at least the end of the cave.

Can you trade Pokemon from Emerald to Pokemon Diamond?

Games Guru: Yup! Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed and LeafGreen are all Diamond and Pearl-compatible. Just plug your cartridges into the Game Boy slot on your DS.

    I am rating your team, Dashonman.

    First, with Palkia, Giratina, AND Rayquaza, it has 1 or 2 too many dragons. A Dragon or Ice type could easily sweep you. Also, grass-type pokemon are resistant to water and ground, so Kyogre, Groudon, and Empoleon are a bit imbalenced.

    If your Palkia uses Draco Meteor, its other attacks will be drastically underpowered. I don’t recommend Draco Meteor on Palkia, but I am easily out-argued there.

    Other than that, your team is pretty good, but please explain how your Empoleon learned Hydro Pump twice.

    Now, will someone rate MY team??

    Palkia Lvl.69- Surf, Thunderbolt, Spacial Rend, Ice Beam

    Torterra Lvl. 57-Rock Slide, Earthquake, Razor Leaf, Rock Climb

    Drapion Lvl. 52-Poison Fang, X-scissor, Crunch, Rock Smash

    Blaziken Lvl. 56-Bulk Up, Slash, Double Kick, Blaze Kick

    Lucario Lvl. 56-Me First, Close Combat, Aura Sphere, Psychic

    Garchomp Lvl. 51-Draco Meteor, Dragon Claw, Slash, Fire Fang

    Please respond!
